An improved routers page

A little while back we updated the design on our Routers category page pretty substantially. You probably remember the old page, which wasn’t as organized as you might have liked.  So, we implemented a new design that makes it easier to compare models, easier to scan for the right product, and we’ve organized information within tabs.  As one customer said during some recent testing of the new page:

“I really like the format of this, being able to expand and hide products. I think it is perfect actually. They have also touched on pertinent information for the products.”

Going Virtual at CES 2010

If there ever was a geek-utopia, it would no doubt look very similar to CES.   Big booths, big announcements and even bigger TVs.  CES 2010 in Las Vegas is being hailed as one of the better shows in the past few years, with all companies big and small releasing high-tech devices.    Unfortunately I could not physically attend, but thanks to the thousands of bloggers and live video streams, I was able to experience much of it virtually.
